Week 58: Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

The Fifields

Tuesday, December 27, 2016

It was a super fun week! 

We had a fun dinner with the Volks. Their two daughters there were in the YSA. They had their living room very decorated! And they had yummy tacos! (A tradition for the elders they have over.) They usually only have the East elders over, but they had the West by accident. But, now they might have us over more. :)

We went over Mongers a lot this week. Basically it is three families there now. One of the families moved their stuff over on Friday and we helped. Haha it was fun! They are all living in the same building but in different apartments. So, that is nice for them. 

The 5 year old twins came to church with Krish, Ganga, and Monita. It was fun and they had fun. They are super adorable!

Oh yeah! I'm staying here for another 6 weeks. This is my 4th transfer here. Elder Umphress is staying here, too. The East elders, Elder Moore and Elder Young are both moving out and the area is being "whitewashed." Elder Giolitto (former Assistant) and Elder Seve are going to move in. So, it will be an interesting transfer.

Anyway, I'm excited to continue to teach all of the Mongers. They are awesome! I'll have to get a picture of them all sometime in the future.

Also, we met an atheist who has actually read the whole bible and actually wants to know if there is a God. He wants hard proof, so we talked about faith and gave him Alma 32 to read. We are meeting him on Wednesday. His name is Daniel.

Oh yeah, he lives in the same street as all our other investigators, so that is fun.

We had a super fun Christmas Party on Thursday! It was with 3 zones. Elder Bingham and Elder Casto, my former companions were both there, too! 

Also, the talent show was hilarious and great! A lot of jokes were cracked, but there were some beautiful talents, too. Elder Bingham played some hymns on his guitar while he signed and Elder Casto got volunteers to eat spicy peppers. Sister Griffin had one, too! I got my packages (which I opened on Christmas) and my letters (which were fun to read there). 

Also, we went caroling at a retirement home and that was a lot of fun! 

Basically, we partied from 9:30 to 5:30. :D

Yup so it was a great week! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Elder Casto had to sit down for a bit haha!

The challenge was to wait for 5 mins before eating yoghurt or drinking milk or eating bread. All but one made it
